Teachings from Ashtavakra Gita

While a man of pure intelligence may achieve the goal by the most casual of instruction, another may seek knowledge all his life and still remain bewildered.Liberation is distaste for the objects of the senses. Bondage is love of the senses. This is knowledge.You are not the body, nor is the body yours, nor are you the doer of actions or the reaper of their consequences. You are eternally pure consciousness, the witness, in need of nothing – so live happily.Recognizing oneself in all beings, and all beings in oneself, be happy, free from the sense of responsibility and free from preoccupation with "me."The body invested with the senses stands still, and comes and goes. You yourself neither come nor go, so why bother about them?Ashtavakra Gita
